John Bagnell Bury (16 October 1861 - 1 June 1927), known as J. B. Bury, was an Irish historian, classical scholar, Byzantinist and philologist. He objected to the label "Byzantinist" explicitly in the preface to the 1889 edition of his Later Roman Empire.
A History of Freedom of Thoughtby J. B. Bury
The late Professor Bury's History of Freedom of Thought is a well-established 'little classic' which has been in steady and continuous demand since it was first published in 1913. Written when liberty of thought seemed likely to become a universally attained ideal, the book is at once a history and a manifesto of a vital human quest whose end has since receded into futurity. For this edition Mr. Blackham has provided a substantial Epilogue surveying, in an historical context, the changed situation in Religion, Education, Parliament, the Press, Science, and in society generally.
